As a student of the evolving workplace, Mara Hauser explores how technology and culture have inspired new ways to work. Using historical references to collaborative farms (1700s), sweatshops (1800s), and the age of electronic business machines (1900s), Mara shares insights on the dynamic shifts that took place when technology got smaller, lighter, and more portable, allowing people to work from anywhere. As the most recent stage in this evolution, “coworking” is the new, economical alternative for working independently—but not alone—in a flexible, productive, shared workspace.
